North Dakota Lawmakers Reject 'Personhood' Rights for Fertilized Eggs


www.foxnews.com

North Dakota's Senate has rejected legislation to bestow human rights on fertilized human eggs, whether they be in the womb or in a laboratory. Senators voted 29-16 Friday to reject legislation that sought to define as a human being "any organism with the genome of homo sapiens."The "personhood" status would include a developing embryo from the moment of conception,whether inside or outside the womb.

A handful of states are considering similar proposals, and the measure generated an intense lobbying campaign from abortion opponents and people who favor abortion rights. Sen. Curtis Olafson, a Republican, spoke out frequently against the bill, saying it would make it difficult for doctors to treat problem pregnancies that could threaten the woman's life because both she and her unborn child would have equal status under the law. At a Senate hearing on the legislation, two reproductive endocrinologists testified that the bill would complicate the practice of in vitro fertilization, which involves removing eggs from a woman's body, fertilizing them in a laboratory, and implanting a fertilized egg inside the womb.

Rep. Dan Ruby (Republican) contacted Democratic senators before Friday's vote, to which he offered to write letters to the editor to vouch for their anti-infanticide credentials, if they backed the legislation.

Ruby wrote, "I will demonstrate my belief that this issue is more important than partisan politics."

The occult-world government loves depopulation, so expect laws against infanticide & non-occult religious-leaders to be challenged by Barry Soetoro & his cronies. They're not serving us. They're serving their god of death.
